Senior Carnival 4 Wrap-Up

The Seniors had their 4th carnival for the season at South Port (just for somewhere different!) on Sunday 24th January.

We had a small crew competing this time as this date happened to coincide with Swimming SAs Long Course State Swimming Champs which meant that several of our regular competitors had to leave early to travel to the SA Aquatic Centre to compete in relays.

As usual the day wouldn’t have run so ‘smoothly’ without the support of the following people:
– Craig and Greg for towing our trailers
– Daryle for being the U14/15 Team Manager
– Ian, Michael, Steve, Pat H and Pat L for being our officials
– Neil for providing water cover (on the jetski of course!)
– Ailsa for taking photos (a selection of these shots are included in this post).

Even with smaller numbers we accrued quite a few valuable points for the club with several top 6 finishes.

A couple of things to highlight:
– Nic coming 2nd (only just missing out on first) in the U17 Ironperson
– Paige competing in flags and actually getting one! (on reflection we think this is the first time Paige has competed in flags since U13s!!)
– Bryana competing for the first time this season (Yr12 is a valid excuse) and coming 3rd in the U19 skis, even though she crossed the line backwards!!

Our next (and final) carnival before States will be held on Sunday 21st February.
At this stage this is scheduled to be at a south coast venue (Port Elliot, Middleton or Goolwa). SLSSA is looking at this possibly being a training and competition weekend with training/coaching clinics occuring on Saturday 20th February.
The Seniors have Club Champs the morning of the 20th so we will wait and see what the final program for this weekend looks like and make a decision as to whether we travel down for the Saturday afternoon sessions then. If this happens we may look at securing some accommodation for the Saturday night to save making this trip two days in a row. More information will be provided as it comes to hand.
